Unlike some other parts of the United States, such as Dallas or New York and most famously Beverly Hills the high end luxury real estate market tends to hover around the $3M to $5M mark.
These home are often described as estate homes and typically they are found on a minimum of 5 acres or in exclusive gated communities. Nashville itself does tend to have homes in that price range with slightly less acreage in the slightly older areas of Nashville such as Belle Meade, Green Hills, West End etc.

I was invited by Scott McIntosh of MusikPitch (a new start up company for generating original music for businesses and individuals) to see a presentation about improving your presentations by Scotty Schwertly. His company is based in Nashville and recently moved here and has helped fuel the recent growth in tech related businesses based in Nashville. His company is called www.Ethos3.com and I would highly recommend going to see his presentation if you get the opportunity. It's definitely an eye opener and a great way to approach and revise your own presentations.

Cool Springs is one of those areas that is part of the Nashville locals library of places to live and work as well as spend most of the weekend shopping, but try to find it on a map or search for homes using "Cool Springs" as the city name and you are going to be out of luck.

When you have a team of 19 top real estate agents that are all very busy with showing homes to clients and offers to write as well as listing new homes to actually get all the team together for a photo shoot is nigh on impossible!
Today we managed to get 17 of TAREG's realtors together for a new team picture at Fairvue Plantation in Gallatin TN. Armando Snmiguel of Brand Mortgage also made the shoot so we had only two team members missing..one due to a pre planned vacation and the other due to a client wanting to reschedule at the last minute.
The pictures were taken by Danny Myers, a professional photographer from Gallatin but we also had Scott McIntosh take some behind the scenes pictures too.

Today was an great example of how a well thought out and organized listing presentation can educate someone that their house is now worth a little less that it was in the previous real estate market climate and that as a seller, you have to go the extra mile to impress the current home buyers.

It really all comes down to putting yourself in the shoes of the home buyer and looking…

Important information on condominium requirements.
Investors are now requiring condo purchases to carry both building insurance (usually covered by the HOA) and content insurance. It is called an HO6 policy or better known as a renter’s insurance policy.

Renter’s insurance can run anywhere from $25 to $75 a month (or more) depending on the personal property the individual has.
